This is the story of two women and a first love.  One knew she loved women, the other did not. This is not a story of seduction, though, but of true electrifying passion.  The kind you experience with a look, a brush up against you, or a smile.  It is a love story that took two. Her...

On or around Halloween, now when was that?  No, let's start again.  On or around Halloween, Oct. 31st, just in case you're as mixed up as I am, I saw my first Santa.  There he was jolly, red, "Ho, Ho, Ho," all 6' 1" of him.  He had candy that he was passing out; so it was  ...

Cat's Eye 1 by daw
Fans whirl, like thougths through minds eye, like a racing train, descending upon a stalled car.  The switch is pulled and all is eerily silent. If you have ever just watch a whirling fan and obscessed, wanted it to stop, and couldn't quite reach the cord, then you have had an out-of-body...

Rising Moon's Reflection
Will the true photograph be a thing of the past with the onslaught of the new image machines?  Can just anyone take a picture?  And what about writing?  Has the advent of spell check and grammar check and editing changed the way we write?  Only she/he who pays attention to their subject is the true...

"You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don't trust enough."-Frank Crane As a reader we must trust that the writer has spoken the "truth."  But are the expressions of love, say, that a poet pens those of her experiences or a compilation of...

So many minds have written words, not just any words but the words that are already on the paper.  When I sit down to work I have to think about what I am writing and when I sit I will pick up a pen and write, and revise, and write; probably.  But sitting in a plane the other day I wrote.  The...

Mental Age 13
I had to find out who Jake Kirby was.  He is part of Information Technology.  Is this quote meant to give us some information on life; I wonder. Resolutions made in the new year are usually pleasurable when we make them but are very painful when we break them.  Take for example the one made that...

I take time to read and have been wondering about books.  Do I want an e book and if so which one?  But will giving up the tactile adventure of holding a 'real' book not be good enough?  Will I need a large print book and would it be easier to get this on an e book than in a large print book?  Then...

When I was eleven and on the verge of Christmas Eve, twelfth month, my twelfth birthday, we were living in poverty.  We had just returned "home" from our move to AZ with nothing but the shirts on our backs.  My dad had had an auction in the summer before and we moved with the promise of a...

When did the task of writing get to be so long?  What ever happened to writing the essence of a body of work?  The novel I am currently reading is over 800 pages; there are six books in the first set of this series, all over 800 pages.  I am enjoying the book but why is it taking so long to say it...

North and East by Joel White
In the East is youth, where the journey begins.  In South the gathering of power.  In West there is love.  In North there is wisdom.  Those that have completed the journey have gathered the wisdom to speak of the other directions. They can give advice or they know how to wisely accept what they...

Insomnia caused by hypomania can lead to a split in personality or an alter ego.  When my other self is writing she can express herself more clearly than when she is complete with the other self.  For instance when I do a post on this site I believe it to be of better quality than the other Denise...
